My first computer was an 80286 with ms-dos 4.0 in 1990, I had internet and Windows 3.1 for the first time in 1994 and Linux (Slackware and Debian).
I saw the birth of Google Search Engine, p2p Napster, Yahoo, eBay, WordPress and the first DDoS attacks.
In 1995 and 1996 I started learning programming, Pascal, Fortran, Basic and C.
In 2015 I had a mentor, hacker and forensic, I learned about pentesting with him.
In 2017 I started with Bug Bounty and studying more C, Python and Golang.
In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.
If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.
If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

#Cloudflare routinely blocks competitor's VPN's.
People should not be harassed by a global data bully for choosing to use a competitor's product.
I am the typical obsessed with privacy and anti forensic techniques. I mostly use secure services and I'm now trying decentralized messaging apps.
I have tried, for example, Briar and now just installed Jami. If anyone has any opinion or experience to share I will be open. Thanks a lot.
